The last two weeks have been really low key in this house because the main goal was to recover from the blood loss, so I took a lot of rest at home. With extra time at home, I read +10 books already. Don’t mind my book selection, I simply enjoy the act of reading. It’s such a relaxing, self-discovering experience. I’d have 2 books open at the same time, and read them depending the mood of the moment. It happened to be all chinese because I bought +20 books from china.
I’ve been cooking more too.
Macro plate with tahini sauce
oat bran with cottage cheese and almond butter
macro plate with chicken
teriyaki salmon with frozen veggies
homemade whole wheat bagel
it was my first time making them and they turn out great! I’ve been having way too much too often of them though 😉
I’ve been eating a lot of scrambled eggs too… loving protein packed breakfasts.
Sofia enjoying her korean rice cakes, one of her favorites
I’ve started making batches of steel cuts too, both Sofia and I enjoy it for breakfast. It’s so easy to make and so filling. This one has frozen berries, cottage cheese and almond butter.
last weekend we went to iceskating again. Although her favorite instructor was not there again, this time she agreed to play with the older kids. Really playing, not skating.
on Sunday (last week) we went to Huihui’s home for dinner, her husband prepared a delicious meal for us.
when we’re at home, Sofia find things to do by herself most of the time, like cutting papers
We invited Susan’s family over for some wonton last weekend… it’s such a good activity for the crowd
while the adults wrapped the wontons, girls played
wonton was ready. filling was greens, pork, mushroom and pickles.
final product… delicious and warming bowl of yumminess.
I made aduki porridge for dessert. A perfect sweet ending for the evening.
DC area was hit by a snow storm, the biggest one in 40 years, so we got prepared. Went to groceries store twice to stock up on food and stayed in the house for three days. Tony and Sofia played with snow everyday… what a fun activity!
and I cooked and baked. Made two banana pecan breads
so filling so good. I’ve been eating 1-2 slices every morning as snack (too big for snack but can’t blame myself for how good it is! :))
continued to enjoy steel cuts with homemade marinara and egg
snow reached 2 feet after 24 hrs of continued snow
chinese meal to reward the hard working snow cleaner Tony: garlic shrimp over vermicelli, sautéed mustard greens, and stir fry lotus root with broccoli and black fungus.
turnip and lamb stew, sauteed bok choy, always served with brown rice. Lamb is a the meat of the winter, to warm the body and the soul, and good for anemic pregnant lady. 🙂
belly is so evident these days.
this afternoon after the snow has stopped, Sofia and I went out for a walk to explore how’s neighborhood….
it was filled with snow!!!! but our driveway is clean thanks to Tony after 4+ hours of cleaning.
Ready to get back work? Not ready, just got a message from work saying that office will be closed tomorrow. Another staycation, YEY!!! 😆
